How would you suggest we deal with overly long titles?

Honestly, I'm not thrilled with the current "uniform boxes" look of that part of the dashboard... but were that to stay, I'd say that it'd be best to figure out (conservatively) how many characters can find on a line, and if it exceeds, chop the last 4 and add " ..."

We could have some more breathing room if the font size were smaller.

Finally, it'd at least look a little bit better if the height of the title/site were such that a certain number of lines would show, exactly (no mid-line chop). It looks to be a few pixels off from that, right now.
